Scheduled to launch in December, "MSG GO" enables fans, whether at home or on-the-go, to watch all live Knicks games as they appear on MSG Networks.

To ensure they don't miss a minute of the action, fans can access "MSG GO" for the Knicks' upcoming schedule, and set reminders on their personal devices for all Knicks games on MSG Network.
Once launched, "MSG GO" will be made available at no additional charge to subscribers of participating television providers who receive MSG Networks as part of their pay television subscription. MSG Networks has reached an agreement with Cablevision, and is currently engaged in discussions with other operators.
